|Here we are: The Mad Scientists team in full costume!!|
The Mad Scientists among many other teams, donned their costumes and set out to earn the money we had raised so far in sponsorship. After a joint team lap or three, we took turns, in pairs, throughout the 24hrs to walk the track for a range of themed fancy dress shifts, where anything you want shifts and competition laps. Luckily, after that very wet start, the weather seemed to be on our side and the sun shone for most of the weekend.

|Bartessa and Ria, ready to entertain us all - a job well done!|
Everyone who was there or who gave money, services or time to the event did a great job and a whopping £91,000.00 was raised - a huge record for this Lydney Relay for Life event which was celebrating it's 10th anniversary. Thank you to all of the people who sponsored me, it really is much appreciated. I met some great people and although a little weary at the end of it all, I left with a good feeling inside for what we had all achieved.
